Bigger Than Life

Ken Adam’s Film Design
The German-British production designer Ken Adam rose to fame primarily as a result of his futuristic constructions for James Bond sets in the 1960 and 1970s. Personal documents, sketches and designs for film sets such as "Goldfinger" and "Moonraker" made their way into the Ken Adam Archive at the Deutsche Kinemathek and are now being evaluated and released for the first time.
The catalogue accompanying the exhibition features essays by renowned authors on a diverse range of previously unexamined aspects of Adam's career: the artistic roots of his Gesamtkunstwerk and his influence on art, design and architecture.
